Rehau has developed Rehau Connect, a project platform where tradespeople can collaborate and create a personalised quote with company logos.
A 3D visualiser enables users to turn and rotate the windows and doors in all directions, providing a 360⁰ impression and realistic visuals, while a configured window sketch with individual prices provides transparency to buyers.
Head of marketing and communications Stephen Beresford said: “With the development of Rehau Connect, demand and supply come together faster. The digital platform helps to organise a window project by enabling a central place for plans, visuals and quotes. We’ve taken a digital-first approach when creating this resource for installers and fabricators, to encourage more efficient processes.”
Instant communication is also becoming more of a requirement, with 93% of tradespeople having introduced new ways of communicating in 2020. “Consumers are researching more now than ever and as a result, businesses are being inundated with requests. This means a more efficient approach to formal processes, such as developing quotes, is required. This is where the digital space can payback dividends. Connect can save time by enabling faster and simpler communication between all parties, which could help to win projects. It’s an added bonus that it eliminates the need for a complex and endless trail of physical documentation, which’s also echoes Rehau’s wider sustainability strategy.”
Rehau Connect links fabricators with installers that have been approved through the company’s Authorised Partner Scheme.
